Simultaneously we begin to hear the bombing of Berlin and see Heidi - the disfigured daughter of Hitler - crawl from a bunker. Caught in the turmoil of war, she is hidden away by her father, one of the most dreaded men in history.
Back at the bus shelter Mark becomes so engrossed in Anna’s story; he begins to wonder how it would feel to be the child of someone as evil as Hitler. As the play evolves, Mark’s search for truth in a world of half-truths becomes clearer and the story culminates in the bombing of Berlin, the fall of the Third Reich and the end of Heidi’s innocence.
Hitler's Daughter is a creative and immersive play that re-tells historical events through the eyes of a fictional character. Young members in the audience are challenged to self-reflect and question the reality of truth, and notions of personal responsibility.
The audience - as Mark is - are left with the lingering question: Did Hitler really have a daughter? Was she real? Today, in an age of fake news and fact manipulation, extreme ideologies and rising nationalism, there has never been a more important and relevant time to present this work.
